The Circle Cuff was commissioned to recreate a favorite bracelet that was lost but not forgotten. Working from 2 photos Schaefer brought the Circle Cuff Bracelet back to life in shiny, sterling silver. The following are photos showing the process in reverse.
This custom ring was hand carved in jeweler's wax. With the texture and form of a natural twig the ring has the added allure of being adjustable. It can also work as a man's ring.
Ask me for a custom twig ring or set of wedding bands imbued with the strength of the mighty Oak and the resilience of the Willow.
The storied history of Steuben Glass spanned more than 100 years. Steuben stood at the highest pinnacle of luxury glass with designs exemplified, in the early part of the 20th century, by color and flamboyance and later and into the next century, by a modernist sentiment with crisp, clean lines.
After a brief interlude of closure, Steuben Glass has been incorporated into the Corning Museum of Glass where it continues its tradition of handmade glass at its finest.
This gallery includes examples of my work for Steuben Glass.
